2004 Audi A4 1.8T quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

If you're looking to purchase for the long haul be aware the vehicle will drive well. My once beautiful jet-black A4 (under 100k miles) is embarrassingly unsightly. The paint/topcoat split and appears like large puzzle pieces all over the surface. Dealing directly with Audi Corp I am told to hit the road; pun intended. I asked for a contribution from Audi for a paint job. Denied. The bottom line is it's OK with Audi that my beautiful car now looks like junk. Meanwhile I park near or drive by cheap, much older American made cars with pristine paint/bodies. I live in a normal climate; Pennsylvania and my car has never been exposed to any extreme conditions. I felt that Audi, despite an expired warranty, would have concurred that the vehicle's body should have remained intact, black and have its original pristine shine. It's not even worth washing and its trade-in value is significantly reduced. I later found others online with similar circumstances.

Review

I have owned 3 A4 1.8t quattros (1997) was my first car. I have honestly never had a MAJOR issue with either of my 3 cars, worst thing i had happen was my suspension spring broke while i was driving (in the 1997). I donno maybe i got lucky and everyone got stuck with the bad batch hahaha but any way. Car honestly looks nice from outside and in, drives and handles like a champ, not as fast but if u want a fast car get ones wit bigger engines. there are tho some down falls to em such as the [non-permissible content removed] plastic everyone keeps bringing up, window regulators going out. fortunately i know how to work on em so i never take em to service them. but for those of you who are getting them used and are not prepared to service them on time...dont get it ull just waste your money. if you are and plan to maintain them and not drive like a nascar driver, they will last an would be worth it. by far best car i ever drove

Review

Plastic parts used throughout the engine compartment get old, brittle, fall apart under normal engine heat. Need to take many things apart under the engine compartment to service. Plastic fuel lines kink easily and cause fuel pump failure. Exhaust system falls apart after 6 years. Glove compartment easily breaks off. New parts cost more than the car itself. Audi Stealership (TOWNE AUDI of Englewood NJ) out to rape people overcharging $140/hr. like it was a new car. Stay away from used AUDI's and buy a used Lexus, Infinity or Accura if you want a reliable used car. Sold the car as of March 2016 and bought a wonderful SUBARU FORESTER.
